Spring Break!

The question is asked - what did you do on Spring Break?  Saturday afternoon we went to Grandma's house to do some cleaning.  Sunday was more of the same but then Mama left to go home and back to work, taking the dogs Henry (the black lab mix) and Gracie (the corgi mix) home as well.

However, we went over to see our cousins who live up the road.  Their daughter posed with Yu-Hsuan as he hopes to graduate from 3 wheels to 2.

The boy though being one who likes bigger is better has other ideas for vroom, vroom:

Cousin found a bike no longer in use so Tian could practice more.  She found her balance and started riding all around Grandma and Granddad's place.  An old Big Wheel was discovered for Yu-Hsuan which he used to explore around the grounds.  Keeping both children out of the road kept baba busy.

We did manage to get some cleaning and sorting done and recycle material and trash separated.  The trip was labeled as cleaning house and rest.  Rest was no where to be found but exhaustion was available in large quantities by the time we returned home last night.  Picture loading the car, having to unlock the doors between each trip to the car because some little person keeps shutting and locking the doors as so as baba's back is turned.  What should have taken a few minutes to accomplish took about 3 hours to pack, because there was debris from 2 wild children scattered all over the house, yard and car.

However, all this was interspersed with children young and old having fun as cans and boxes of outdated food, medicine and various other potions was scattered about for the 'wildlife' to enjoy after we left.  Yu-Hsuan has a partially very white head as the bottle of Maalox he was shaking came back down on his hair leaving a nice white smudge.  Baba decided (foolishly) to show the children what Butch wax would do to one's hair which is one tight pile of greasy hair.  I looked like Jim Carrey in A Series of Unfortunate Events.  While there are pictures...don't expect them here.
